Mobile Tethering

What is Tethering?

Tethering allows you to utilize all the features of the Faraday Desktop App from your mobile browser.

  • Data stays local - everything you see on mobile is read directly from your home computer. None of your data is ever saved to a remote database.
  • Mobile chats - you can remotely spin up models on your computer's CPU/GPU, and use them to chat with any of your local Characters on the go.
  • 100% free - since you are still using your own hardware to run the LLMs, there are no additional costs to use Tethering.
  • Secure - all data is encrypted and sent over a secure connection.

Tethering is completely opt-in, not enabled by default, and can be turned off anytime. The desktop app can always be used without an internet connection.
